    We found nothing so further research is needed ....

    Also "A history of at least one FSS was reported by 20.4% of patients" How many patients said they had an FSS? The usual thing is for doctors to interpret patient symptoms as indicating an FSS. Just rubbish.

    So having brain damage is now a functional condition? The medical profession really has gone completely mad.

    One wonders about misdiagnosis in all subtypes of FSS which is still occurring in Conversion Disorder:

    "Misdiagnosis of an underlying medical condition as Conversion Disorder/Functional Neurological Disorder (CD/FND) still occurs." 2020. C.M.van der Feltz-Cornelis

    "Our findings show that misdiagnosis of an underlying medical condition as CD/FND still occurs in chronic cases within the specialist mental health setting. Large scale interdisciplinary research studies with collaborating psychiatrists and neurologists are required to confirm these findings and to contribute to the re-evaluation of guidelines for assessment of CD/FND. Also, these findings warrant the serious consideration of diagnostic re-evaluations in chronic cases. There is a clear call for structurally embedding somatic re-examination and reevaluation in specialist mental health settings, by consultation liaison and integrated care models which involve psychiatrists, referring neurologists and primary care physicians. Such a provision, that has shown to be beneficial at case level [13], is unfortunately not currently widely available. Policymakers should support the development of such sus- tainable somatic evaluation facilities and services."

    not giving doctors the ability to refuse to do their damn jobs may be all it takes to remove this totally fallacious excuse . just because the correct testing and referral to some one with a better understanding of various symptoms cost time and money . does not give them the right to jump to the god of the gaps eminence based thinking put out by professional illness deniers . i wonder how many doctors are deeply ashamed of the way supposedly modern medicine is being dragged/pushed back into the dark ages because of financial interest ie insurance and government bean counters . as soon as there ceases to be financial incentives to the parasites publishing endless copy pasted deeply flawed/ fraudulent papers the sooner we can return to actual scientific investigations of the amazingly complex human body .
